Young Ambassadors Adventure to Iceland
From July 16th to July 21st, our 12 Young Ambassadors had the chance to travel to Iceland, along with 8 volunteers and staff, to spread HLC's mission globally. We had a conference, along with MND of Iceland, on Tuesday about Camp HLC & Caring for Caregivers. Almost 1/3 of Iceland's ALS patients attended this conference! We were able to speak about differences in US versus Iceland culture in caring for our pALS. In addition to this informative day, we were able to explore Iceland thanks to our sponsors: MND félagið á Íslandi, The International Alliance of ALS / MND Associations, OR - Orkuveita Reykjavíkur, Elding Whale Watching Reykjavik, Víkingaheimar, Velferðarráðuneytið & Blue Lagoon Iceland. HLC is looking forward to meeting up with MND Iceland again this December at the ALS/MND Alliance Conference.
